Form & Verdict

Won last winter on first two hurdle starts (2m, good/soft) and, bar a bad mistake at the final fence, she jumped well when winning a novice handicap at Kempton (2m2f, good) on her recent chase debut; benefits from the valuable 4yo allowance and could be in the mix for leading trainer.

Readily justified favouritism upped to 2m4f at Wincanton (soft) two months ago, registering another Listed win and taking chase record to 3-3; goes into deeper waters in this grade back against male rivals but may well be up to the task, being an improving mare who is 2-2 at Kempton and receives weight all round.

Flat bred but she won twice over hurdles and is 2-2 in this discipline having jumped well en route to clearcut wins at Kempton (2m2f, good) and Exeter (2m1f, good to soft); the highest rated of these on BHA figures and gets a 4yo allowance.

Has improved over fences this season, initially in mares' events over 2m1f at Exeter (good to soft and soft) and latterly only just edged out in a novice handicap there last month; may yet do better as a chaser but she can't take advantage of her current mark, from 6lb out of the weights.

Returned to form with an easy win under Peter Summers when back over fences at Leicester (2m, soft) last month; that was a first chase victory at the 11th attempt and she beat only two rivals, but it's hard to knock that performance otherwise and a 4lb rise isn't harsh.

Four novice wins over hurdles last term; no joy this season and although she's been runner-up with cheekpieces enlisted on last three occasions (back over hurdles, from fences, on last two), that was in small fields and she has to look vulnerable in a race like this; all starts under rules have been on softer than good, on heavy ground last three starts.

Has had three wind operations, the latest last May after a poor run at this meeting; won chase debut at Worcester in October and very good second in Grade 2 novice at Wincanton one month later, both at 2m4f, but a nine-day gap before latest start was seemingly insufficient as she ran poorly (2m1f); off 150 days since and needs improvement but could still have more to offer.
